I don't think having two separate lists is a good idea. Of course, I 
see that having control is very important. But Yahoo does have some 
nice features like digests, web browsing, archives and searching.

It is possible to host "remote groups" at Yahoo (see Squeak, for 
example) so you still have most features but get to manage the list 
directly using Majordomo. The problem is that this is not 
bidirectional, so everyone in the current list would have to 
individually move over to yours (posting via Yahoo would no longer be 

In the Majordomo FAQ I see that there is a gateway program for linking 
your list to a newsgroup, but I don't see anything about another list.

What do the other list members think?
